What are the symptoms of cancer?

My best friend went to an oncologist today, with extreme white blood cell count at 21. Her symptoms are sore tounge, pain in left side of neck, fatigue, pain in lower left side of the body which gall bladder has been ruled out. The Vitiam B-12 shots are not work for her anymore. Could this be a sign of cancer?

Hi and welcome to HCm
yes but this is not the first thing to think of. this is more likely to be some systemic infection and this is the first thing to evaluate. blood disorders can furthetly be evaluated by hematologist but as I said you should be optimistic and do compelte work up.
,, Wish you good health. Regards
